These days I rarely carry cash on me because I almost always pay with a credit card or Apple Pay. However, I know a lot of people still use cash, and sometimes when you travel it makes sense to have the local currency on you, so I thought I’d share a tip my dad taught me years ago: When you’re carrying U.S. dollars, always put the smaller bills on the outside and the big notes on the inside (especially if you use a money clip). This way, it looks like you don’t have a lot of money on you.
